This is actually the second time we have stayed here this year, once in the spring and now in the fall (didn't write a review the first time since this was one of the first parks we stayed in). We are fairly new to the RV life, but have stayed in quite a few in several western states over the past half year. This is by far one of the best. It is a few miles from the freeway so no real road noise. It is across the road from the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Refuge so there are lots of opportunities to see birds, deer, and elk at different times of the year. We work while on the road and the wifi here is excellent. In most parks we end up using our cell phone hotspots, but it is not necessary here. As many have commented, the spaces are all pull throughs with lots of space in between. With the angles of the spaces, there can be someone next to you, but you don't notice when you go out. Our travel trailer and pickup are about 60 feet, and there is no issue with these long spaces and wide turning areas. We have not used the pool, but it looks pretty small. The bathrooms have 2 showers and 3 toilets/urinals. Kind of small, but well maintained and clean. I think we picked up about 60 tv stations (several duplicates) over the air and they all come in very clear. The hookups are in great shape and easy to use. They have great areas to walk dogs and have bags and disposal bins all over the park. I'd highly recommend this park if you are in the area.
This is one of the nicest RV parks we have ever been to! We have a large RV (42 ft), and we're towing, so having lots of space to maneuver is very important. They have huge pull-through sites with easy turns around the very large park. The natural setting of this park is stunning--mountains, springs, birds all day and night, and beautiful sunsets. There are fire pits with wood available, and we had fires on 2 different nights while listening to the owls. We will definitely be back!
This park has been our "one-nite" stopover for several years when we travel between OR and Twin Falls, Idaho. Well maintained in a beautiful setting. The BEST Wi-Fi we have ever had in a RV park. No cable, but digital TV reception was excellent. We had a pull-thru packed gravel spot adequate for our 42-ft DP and tow vehicle with room for all slides. Great outdoor pool. We did not use laundry or restroom facilities. The park is a bit off the beaten path from the freeway and the access road to the park is gravel. Big rig friendly! Friendly staff!
Nice wide open park. No trees where we were put. 100 pull thru pads. Can be very windy. Lots of places to walk. About 5 miles from interstate. Why the low rating? Tried to use the restrooms after pool hours and could not get in. So, showers are only available during pool hours. NOT ACCEPTABLE! Only one shower for the entire park. Nice views and very nice hosts.
Very pleasant RV park

LARGE spacious spaces
50 AMP service in most locations

Small swimming pool for size of park
This was a great little park we stopped at for two days.
I have seen very few RV parks with deserve a 5 star rating (or 10 on Good Sam) but this is one.
Only spent one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. Owner was exceptionally helpful. Park and grounds well-maintained in a gorgeous setting. Wifi excellent even more a planned upgrade the next week. Great value!
Great rv park with views wildlife and local exploring
Even the wifi worked.....first time in 5 months
Be sure to spend $10 @ for tour of next door hotel museum....one of the best private collections of indian and other history weve seen.
Park is clean and quiet and should be all 9.5 ratings
The managers at this park are very helpful and accommodating. We brought our trailer to the manufacturer for some warranty work. Not knowing how long our trailer would be at the shop, we couldn't make firm reservations. Hot Lake worked with us to do daily rentals. This is not a fancy resort style park but the spaces are level, the hook-ups easy to get to, the WI-FI worked well. The pool and hot tub are very well maintained and enjoyable. The bathrooms were clean and maintained. There are trains passing a short distance away but we didn't really notice them. Other than that it is very quiet. We have been to this park twice and enjoyed it both times.
This is a peaceful and fun place to stay. We had intended to only stay two nights but extended to a week because there is so much to do in the La Grande area. The facilities are excellent and the owners are in the process of upgrading to make them even more appealing to all types of campers. This was not our first time and will definitely not be our last!

Oregon is a land of contrasts. This is where fossil-packed deserts collide with raw coastline, where microbreweries serve beer alongside chic wineries, and where pioneer and indigenous history run deep....
